Hanging out at Peel Sessions warmin up for Monster Track Weekend.
Hirouki Shinozuka, otherwise known as "Shino" and his companion Hal are back in New York City for Monster Track weekend. It was really good seeing both of them at Prolly's Peel Sessions under the BQE in Williamsburg. Both of these Tokyo messengers were the subject of my short film, "Track Kaiju" which I put together for the Bicycle Film festival 2007. We finally got the chance to give them DVD's because, we finally finished the DVDs. They seemed happy and that made me relieved because it took me almost a year to finish this project.
Shino checking out the DVD.
I hoped they had as much fun in New York as we had making this movie. Mike Dee showed up for a brief appearance to welcome Hal and Shino, who we hadn't seen in a year.
So we are pre-releasing this Monster Track Tribute DVD, tomorrow at the Gold Sprints
Party. They will be $15.00.
The Movie includes: My 20 minute short film, a 10 minute race video featuring the mastery of Lucas Brunelle and 20 minutes of interviewing with Mike Dee and Kym Perfetto before the actual race started.
There is commentary by Mike Dee and the film makers and a bunch of bonus material highlighting all the talent that goes into this big event.
Please come through and buy a copy.
Here is a little sample...a quick cut from Monster Track 2007.
